Motez’ soundscape pushes the boundaries of your regular club producer, going way back before he was making wholesome, wall-to-wall club cuts and rocking festivals stages, chalking up six Hype Machine #1s, an ARIA Gold single and dropping official remixes for Disclosure, Sam Smith, Goldlink and Ellie Goulding and collaborating with the likes of Tkay Maidza and Antony & Cleopatra. The latter coming in the form of the ARIA Certified Gold hit ‘The Future’: Motez’s most personal offering to date, receiving support from BBC- R1, KCRW, Triple J, and amassing over 20 millions streams leading to a sold out tour across Australia.
Motez finished off 2019 with two heavy club hitters ‘Toggle’ and ‘Where Have You Been’, gaining support from the likes of Claptone & Idris Elba after premiering on Danny Howard’s BBC Radio1 show, followed by ‘Patience’: a progressive tech lift lined with a motivational undertone to kick off 2020. As the reality of COVID19 hit, Motez’s focus shifted to a completely new body of work titled ‘Soulitude’. Five emotive, ambient, electronic compositions that stemmed from his newfound state of isolation. The EP showcased a new side to Motez’ ever-evolving production capabilities, and was premiered through a grand sunset live-performance stream from the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia, streaming to over 20,000 people in the first 24 hours.
On stage, Motez played around the world from mainstage at EDC Las Vegas to Holy Ship, BTV and Splendour in the Grass.
